    IF you know where the shortcut is on the network,
    how do you create a one commnd line short cut?

    Your question defies interpretation, but if you mean that you know or
    the address of a file on your local network, open it in Windows Explorer
    and right click on the item. Choose Create Shortcut from the menu. That
    also works for pathnames on your computer.

    If you mean that you know the URL of a web site, go there and drag the
    address from the location bar of your browser to the desktop. That works
    in Firefox. (You have to grab the icon just to the left of the URL
    text.)
